Catch Up

I haven't blogged since we moved here almost 2 years ago. I actually didn't blog much the last year we lived in California.

I healed well, although slowly, from my major abdominal surgery in 2012.

Ki developed sudden onset idiopathic scoliosis in late fall of 2012, was officially DXed January 2013, wore a painful night brace for about 10 months until the scoliosis had progressed enough to warrant surgery despite his religious use of the brace. he has major back surgery to fuse his spine and insert rods on December 20, 2013.











he one month left for the sleek black daytime brace. He returned to work 2 weeks ago. He works part time at Steak and Shake.

he is 17 now.

Gavin is 20 and finishing his 2nd & final year at Sinclair Community College. He was referred for a paid internship working on base and plans to join ROTC (Air Force) while attending Wright State University this fall.

Connor is 19 and doing very well at his first year at Siniclair. getting As, taking Calculus (and all the regular Freshman classes), and enjoying the learning process.

I work part time at a Healthfood store and continue to homeschool Ki. He does most his own schooling now, I just keep him focused and moving forward.

I lost the weight I gained from my tumor and eating too much while living in Cali. I started eating on the Paleo Plan 2 weeks ago, as a trial. I think I will continue.

Save Yourself from the Burning Pits!


Public Service Announcement #93

Do NOT-
I repeat; "DO NOT"

EVER!
Do Not Use your husband's electric shaver on your arm pits right before a bike ride.
RAZOR BURN + SALTY SWEAT=

My pits were On Fire! It made my eyes water it hurt so much!!!

Now, onto the actual blog:

Some of you may recall that yesterday I passed my milage mark biking. I had been doing around 2 miles since my surgery (May 21)

I used MAPMYRIDE and plotted a course...
Hey, does that remind anyone else of PIMP MY RIDE? It does me. Every time.

Anyway, I plotted a course that was about 4.8 miles. more than double my usual. bad idea. (combined with the bad idea to use my husband's razor on my arm pits)

OI biked out- 2.4 miles. at about 2.3 my vision started getting just a touch warbly.

By the time I got home , it was like I was looking through fractured glass- where the fractures PULSE brightly.

and them the headache started.

2 Excedrin + 2 Ibuprofen + Starbucks = cleared vision and half the headache.

By bedtime, the fractured vision was back (LEFT SIDE OCULAR MIGRAINE).
Very Shortly followed by intense right side migraine head pain.

When My son gave me a good-night kiss, he jabbed my RIGHT eye. It was my last good eye! DARN!

So I have a throbbing, fractured vision left -eye.
A sore, throbbing right eye.
A bad Migraine.

I had taken 2 Excedrin + 2 Ibuprofen when it first started.
I should have just taken 2 Fioricet. It was a 2 Fioricet Migraine.

I lay in bed, in the dark, with my eyes closed and curled up in a ball almost puking.

Around 2 AM it had gone down a notch, or I was just so fatigued I had relaxed. And it was time for Fioricet.

I was still awake till 3-ISH, I bet.

SO- I am doing NOTHING today!

and taking more Fioricet.

Ki Made Dinner Last Night:



Pancake Buffet: Blueberries and dark chocolate chips are the BEST!

Pus, she said

The cat got into a fight.
The cat now had pus filled wounds.
The vet tried to drain said pus from said wounds.
To no avail.
Now the cat has meds to take to combat the pus from the inside.
Said Cat does not like said meds that are to help said pus shrink up inside of said wounds.




Said Cat now has to wear a cone.
He does not like said cone.

In Other News:
I decided to track my calories, fiber, fat, exercise. I fund one of those sites that tells you how much of everything you should do/eat for how old, tall, fat you are. I ended up WAY over on my fat intake today. But the majority of my fat today comes from nuts and fish. Both of which are good sources of good fats, so I'm OK with that.

Vacation!


We are having a mini vacation in Corona, CA. Where it is about 105 degrees with to much humidity.

We are staying with gaming friends so we can attend one of thier game nights before we move.

Brian got his orders Wednesday for our move; meaning he had a meeting on base at 1:15. Meaning we hit rush hour traffic. Meaning we got to our friends house late.

We played 3 quick games with out friends. We taught them Gang of Four and 10 Days in Africa.

They got out 7 Wonders and taught us that. It was fun, but will be bettr next time when I play it next time.

Brian and I are playing a new game. Starship Catan.






Brian painted my nails. Actually I painted them pink, then he drew on them with a Sharpie Marker.

Tonight is Game Night. I have peppermint patties and nails to match my shirt tonight.
